What’s the story?

Former WWE Superstar Rich Swann spoke out about some of his issues on the independent scene since his arrest and his wife, Sü Yüng, took to Twitter to defend her husband.

In case you didn’t know

Swann was arrested in Gainesville, Florida on Dec. 10, 2017, on charges of battery and kidnapping/false imprisonment against Yüng which lead to his suspension from WWE.

Charges were dropped against Swann, and, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon stated that he would be free to come back once the case was resolved, but Swann and WWE mutually agreed to part ways.

The heart of the matter

After leaving WWE, Swann started to take bookings on the independent scene but said on Twitter that he was running into issues despite the dropped charges and, went on to say that he would be retiring after he completes his recent dates.

Yüng would respond to the criticism Swann was facing and said that she fully loved and supported her husband and asked for people to respect their privacy.

She also said that “I have demons and I am working on myself” and that the support and love shown by fans made it better just like Swann makes her better.

Yüng ended the discussion by telling people to accept what she told them about her situation with the hashtag “I support Swann” and began retweeting people with the hashtag who showed support for Swann returning to professional wrestling.


What’s next?

Swann was expected to compete in New Orleans during WrestleMania weekend for House of Hardcore, but the former Cruiserweight Champion has reportedly pulled himself from all WrestleMania weekend events according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

Author’s take

Given everything that’s happened between the two, this is a difficult situation to discuss. Yüng says she supports her husband, but wrestling fans aren’t known for their forgiveness.
